I’m Lia. I host evenings on KWHW Am/FM .  I am The Facilitator. The sticky substance that holds  the stories together with the songs. I’m the gal who can’t for the life of me keep a secret yet everyone seems to tell me their secrets anyway. I love my job. I’m happily married to the luckiest guy on earth, Chad. I have 4 kids. All of them smart, spoiled and love  country music. Here’s a secret about me:  I never talk on the phone  when I’m not at work. I was born and raised in Kentucky. My mom, a Southern Belle housewife, and my dad, a farmer, bar owner, janitor, banjo picker, had finally had enough kids. I was the last of four and, believe me, I think I was the reason they didn't want anymore!  As far as this show goes, I just want you to know that we all work very hard each night to  put this thing together. I'm so lucky to have such a great team of people to work with.
